About Me
We have wide hips, we have gaps between the body and the back of the jeans. We gain weight, we lose weight. But what do we do when we don't fit our jeans anymore?

I am a mother of 3 (7yr, 5yr, and 2 yr) whose pants size has increased - not by a full size but by a half size. In addition, some of my jeans fit me nicely around the hips but loose on the waist which causes the "gape" in the back. Belts are bulky and adds another layer of thickness to my waist (belt bulge). With three kids, I couldn't afford to replace my whole wardrobe, so I creatively secure my jeans with safety pins for a better fit. Tired of poking my fingers with the pins, I invented the patent pending Instant Button™ for Jeans.

First of its kind, Instant Button™ for Jeans is a removable button that instantly and seamlessly alters the waistband up to one and a half sizes WITHOUT requiring a belt or an alteration.

A variety of factors can impact the waistline and therefore the fit of a pair of jeans/pants:

- In-between sizes
- A gap between the body and the back of the waistband
- Wider Hips
- Weight Loss
- Weight Gained
- Pop-off button
- Belt Bulge

No matter the situation, the Instant Button™ for Jeans is a fashionable and quick solution and a great alternative to spending more money on alterations and new jeans in this tough economy.

Dana - thank you for your reply. I am sorry but I can not offer assistance with connecting you with buyers. I do not make suggestions to buyers (unless it is product that I am selling...). Sorry about that..

No, you do not have to send me any samples. I wish you the best with your business.

Fashionable Suggestions
